Sarwanam Theatre opened its hall!

Since 31. of March 2012 the theater and Art Center started living, after 8 years of preparation.

It includes not only an auditorium, but also an art gallery, a library and research center, an art workshop hall and a cafe.

Every evening at 5:30 Sarwanam’s own play “Sakuni pasaharu” written and directed by Ashesh Malla, director of Sarwanam Theater”, is shown in the auditorium that hosts up to 170 people.

The play is something like a modern twist to the mythology “Mahabharata”. That’s why we advise you to get to know this story before watching in case you don’t know it. In the play the original “Mahabharata” has been modified so that it fits into the present context. After watching our play you will realize that “Mahabharata” still exists. The characters like Duryodhana did not change but good person like Yudhisthir have started joining hands with the evil-minded Sakuni to earn more power and money.

Soon you may start developing sympathy for Duryodhana who actually is a bad person in “Mahabharata” instead of Yudhisthir and Arjuna..

Sarwanam’s theatre group spend a lot of time on the rehearsals for the play and the time was not wasted. While watching you can see that they know what they are doing and have fun doing it!
